To Protect Rhinos, This National Park Just Shoots People (50 Poachers Killed So Far) – HealthyTipsAdvice

When it comes to protecting rhinos, Kaziranga National Park is certainly a success story worth telling – but at what cost?

The new policy of the last few years has allowed rhinos to flourish in the park once more – but they do so at the cost of human lives, as park guards are allowed to shoot poachers on site.

The park now hosts 2,400 Indian One-horned Rhinoceros – nearly two-thirds of the world population of the endangered animals.

In the last few years, however, that success has come at the cost of 50 poachers’ lives.

Poachers know the rhinos’ horns are incredibly valuable, as they can be sold for as much as $6,000 for 100g, making them considerably more valuable than gold. 

The horns are then marketed as a miracle cure for everything from cancer to erectile dysfunction.

So the question becomes: How do you measure the value of a human life against the value of a rhino’s life?
